Apple Rush Co., Inc. Receives FINRA Approval for Restructuring

GLENVIEW, IL--(Marketwire - Sep 14, 2011) - Apple Rush Co., Inc. (PINKSHEETS: APRU) is pleased to announce that the Company has received FINRA approval for restructuring. Apple Rush's Board of Directors previously approved a recapitalization plan in order to position itself for growth over the next twelve months. The recapitalization plan is designed to increase financial flexibility for Apple Rush and its shareholders.

The Apple Rush Board approved a one thousand five hundred (1,500) to one (1) Reverse Split for all common shares. This transaction will be effective as of September 14, 2011. The recapitalization plan allows Apple Rush greater flexibility to utilize the assets of the Company in the future for corporate purposes, including raising capital, acquisitions or employee compensation, with limited dilution of existing stockholder voting rights. As a result of this announcement, the stock symbol will be changed temporarily to APRUD for a period of 20 business days after September 14, 2011.

In February 2011, Apple Rush Co., Inc. had its bankruptcy dismissed by the United States Bankruptcy Court Northern District of Illinois Eastern Division. Apple Rush Co., Inc. resumed trading on the OTC Markets under the symbol APRU. Subsequently, management initiated a recapitalization plan which has resulted in a significant reduction of operating expenses and debt.

Apple Rush continues to make advancements in product development as the new Blueberry and Black Cherry flavors were launched in the 3rd Quarter of 2010. The new flavors are available in both bottles and cans in all of the Company's market areas. These organic products contain real juice with no added preservatives. Blueberries and Black Cherries are literally bursting with nutrients and flavor, yet very low in calories. Recently, researchers at Tufts University analyzed 60 fruits and vegetables for their antioxidant capability. Blueberries came out on top, rating highest in their capacity to destroy free radicals.
